|Phal. equestris, from the Ron Daley collection|
|Phal. equestris var. alba|
|Phal. mannii var. aureum|
I have three hybrids I adore. They have performed well for me and I have positive memories associated with them: Fred's Redlip, Fred’s Pimento, and Nobby’s Amy. The Phal species, however, are really catching my fancy lately. My favorite is an alba form equestris I bought from Hilltop Orchids. I have a mannii var. aureum (from Oak Hills Gardens) that bloomed for me recently. It’s phenomenal. It has only five flowers, but so much potential.
Don't be surprised if a few more small-growing Phal. species end up in my collection.
